1908 – a young family

Some people like to make lace, some people like to wear lace, I thought it would be fun to paint it. On shorpy.com, I came upon this wonderful black and white photo of a young representative and his wife and little girl. The little girl, Olive Sherley, lived to be 98 years old.  This was an attempt to paint a baby, very difficult. I like how it came out, and I hope you do too.

    I really like the colors you have selected on this. While I might not agree that the baby is ‘darling’, you certainly captured the family.

    You have made them come alive, Mimi! And the babe is darling!
